Read in January, 1987
I thought this was one of the weakest books in the series. The author was going through a divorce, and unfortunately this life event took over his novel. This book consists of nothing but a married couple fighting, having the same argument over and over without any resolution. Vlad is at his most unlikable, too - hard to sympathize with. Some critics liked the "realism" of it, but I found this book slow and depressing. You can skip this one and not miss anything.
